Family Prayer
, no. 189


1. Let us gather in a circleAnd kneel in fam’ly prayerTo thank our Heav’nly FatherFor the blessings we all share.
2. Let us thank him for our mealtime,For clothes we daily wear,For parents, home, and fam’ly,For his kind and loving care.
3. Oh, may we always serve him,In thought and action too,And humbly kneel at prayer-timeAs so many fam’lies do.
